    sounds like you got a winner. But the only comp that involves an RTI ramp is Top Truck....

    sorry I'm wasting space...

    find a right angle triangle calculator and plug in the numbers. commonly the are 20* but are getting steeper. id go 25* and about 5 1/2' tall. prolly 2' wide.

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing. I've been looking for a good project to try my welding ability before I start on important things like on my truck. If I find some good plans I'll post em up

    thanks guys, ive been doing some searching and found that its a good idea to do a 25 degree and about 5 or so feel tall will suffice
    because i think the 20 deg. is for wussies...lol just kidding
    thanks again

    Not that theres anything wrong with a 20* ramp but it takes more material to build the same height and offers less progression that a 25*

    i wouldn't do a 20* ramp, i maxed out a 20* ramp that was 6" tall. they had a stop at the end at the 6' so it was only usable for like 5.5" and i maxed it out with all my tires still on the gound. a 25* ramp seems like the perfect ramp anymore. 30* just seems too steep.

    My club has a 30 degree ramp. No one in our club can max it out. its about 6 to 6.5 feet tall. Its a nice ramp just needs a few things chaged on it to make it easier to use. Could use some expanded metal on the ramp to make it more accurate. Here is a link to some pics of it. http://tired-iron.mounet.com/grace4x4/MG05/default.htm
